Liverpool XI vs Manchester United: Confirmed squad news, predicted line-up and latest Premier League injuries

Jurgen Klopp opted to leave the Portuguese striker on the bench for the FA Cup semi-final win over Manchester City after picking up a knock in the days leading up to the trip to Wembley.

After resting a number of players for the Champions League win over Benfica last week, Liverpool face another juggling act ahead of two derbies at Anfield which come within days of each other.

After United visit on Tuesday, Everton will be their next opponents this weekend before Villarreal travel to Merseyside for the first leg of the Champions League semi-final.

Therefore, Klopp could turn to Joel Matip, Jota, Roberto Firmino or Jordan Henderson after starting the game against City on the bench.

The boss said on Monday: “Some players weren’t in the squad this weekend and won’t be in the squad tomorrow, even though they are in very good shape.”

Liverpool have no new known injury concerns to contend with ahead of tonight’s North West derby.

Predicts Liverpool XI: Alisson; Alexandre-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Keita, Fabinho, Thiago; Salah, Jota, Mané.
